Watch: Lisa Prank shares video for "IUD"

Posted on November 5th, 2019

Your favorite pop-punk princess, Lisa Prank, just shared a video for her song "IUD" today on The Grey Estates. Robin was interviewed by TGE and gives a little context into the song: “The writer Sheila Heti wrote this book I love called 'Motherhood' about her struggle with deciding whether or not to have children, and I wrote “IUD” based on a prompt to write a song about that topic to perform for a date on her book release tour. When I said yes to the event, I was in a serious relationship and I thought I’d write some sweet love song about maybe wanting to have kids. But by the time the event rolled around I had completely procrastinated on writing a song and was in the middle of a dramatic breakup, so this song about contraceptives and lies came out instead.”

Perfect Love Song is available to purchase and listen to wherever finer music is streamed.

Lisa Prank's record, Perfect Love Song, is available in full everywhere today ❤️

Posted on October 4th, 2019

Lisa Prank's newest record, Perfect Love Song, hits both physical and digital store shelves today. Listen to the album in full over at your favorite music streaming platform or buy an LP or CD copy from us or your local record store before they're all gone.

Clare Martin at Paste Magazine spent some time with the album and noted the following, "Thankfully, Edwards makes the potentially trite feel fresh again with her lively lyrics, focusing as much on her own emotional journey as on her romantic relationships. While some of the songs begin to sound the same—brimming with bright power-pop chords and drummer Tom Fitzgibbon going hard on the high-hat—each one invites you to sing along, wistfully thinking about the latest person who broke your heart." Read the full review here, and check out what KEXP had to say about the record here.

Prank is hitting the road next month and will even be playing some shows with label-mates, Remember Sports, on their Sunchokes tour. Don't sleep on getting tickets!

Christelle Bofale's EP, Swim Team, out now

Posted on May 31st, 2019

Celebrate the release of Christelle Bofale's EP, Swim Team, by nabbing a copy on tape or CD today. If you're in Texas, she'll be playing alongside ANIKA at Mohawk in Austin tonight.. just saying. Read what press has said about Swim Team below.

The Congolese American songwriter and guitarist’s debut EP winds in circles, tracing vast spaces that couch thorny emotional quagmires. -Pitchfork

It glides along, guided by watery guitars and a pitter-patter of drums that sound like rain on a windowpane. It shifts from sunshine to twilight and back again. Bofale’s voice lilts into the backdrop, twisting up in it like a spell. It’s impressionistic and warm but steadfastly firm. -Stereogum

"U Ouchea” is a low-key majestic intro to her unique sound, as it softly eases into a relaxed, warmly hypnotic groove, taking its glorious time as it winds and flows like the Colorado river. -Gorilla vs Bear

It flows unpredictably, swirling delicately like the puddles that form along the shoreline, or rushing dangerously from melody to melody like a riptide. Verses and choruses exist, but the boundaries are blurry, and she seems more keen on the swells and emotional moments that come in between established structures. -Noisey

Listen to "Don't Blame It on the Moon", a new single from Esther Rose, Father/Daughter's newest artist!

Posted on February 6th, 2019

Give a warm welcome to F/D's newest artist, Esther Rose. “Don’t Blame It on the Moon” is the new single from New Orleans-based singer-songwriter, Esther Rose. Recorded live to tape at Mashed Potato Studios, “Don’t Blame It on the Moon” is a conversation between two people, whose relationship, despite their best efforts, begins to unravel.

Inspired by the honest writing and timeless melodies of American greats such as Hank Williams Sr. and Joni Mitchell, Esther Rose’s songwriting has been called “The happiest saddest music.” Her 2017 debut, This Time Last Night, caught fire as her listeners tuned-in to a storied chronology of this soulful, heart-worn artist.

Influenced heavily by the collective pulse of her New Orleans musical community, Esther's distinct sound began early in her Michigan upbringing. Reared on gospel records and folk songs on the family farm, she learned to sing the high end of three-part harmonies with her sisters. Rose moved to New Orleans in 2010 and became an active player in the traditional jazz and blues scene as a singer and percussionist, gigging regularly on Frenchmen Street and touring both at home and abroad.

Stay tuned for more from Esther Rose and catch her at our official SXSW showcase on Friday, March 15 at Palm Door on Sabine.


Say hello to Christelle Bofale

Posted on February 5th, 2019

We are very excited to welcome Austin, TX's Christelle Bofale! Here are a few words from our A&R guru Tyler Andere about the first time they saw Christelle live...

“When I first saw Christelle Bofale at a tiny living room show last fall I was completely mesmerized. Her voice is like a perfect shade of maroon. Plucking on her electric guitar so gracefully. With songs that flow and wind around like a river with no end. She adds so much depth and vitality to Austin’s indie rock community. What a gem."

Christelle will play our official SXSW showcase on Friday, March 15 at Palm Door on Sabine, joining Tasha, Sir Babygirl, Rose Droll, Whitney Ballen, and Control Top. Stay tuned for music and much, much more!
